Deck of Cards inspired

This started as a batik that my uncle made, which was inspired by a deck of playing cards. He wanted to do something a bit different with it so we matched the batik with an inner and outer border, then quilted it. It was quilted in the pattern "seaside" which is fairly simple as we didn't want to take away from the batik itself. It was a bit of a challenge to quilt due to the fact that there sometimes is a bit of wax residue left on the batik. This presented a bit of a challenge as the long arm machine seemed to drag as I quilted the batik area. Overall turned out really well and is unique quilt, one that you don't typically see.
